No longer on the bench...






I wanted one...an end of the bed bench.
But, I couldn't find the perfect one at a store.
I thought about buying one off of Craigslist or something 
and reupholstering it...but, I didn't find the right level of
cuteness....and sometimes Craigslist really grosses me out.

Then I found the pin I needed.

And I did my own version.


 My Mom helped with the upholstered pad.
She's in the middle of a kitchen remodel...


 ...then I turned an IKEA Expedit shelf on it's side.


 ...velcro secures the pad...

 ...and woolah!...


...pics are a bit dark, and I don't know if books
will are really gonna stay in there...

Fabric, cording and padding were about
$55 after I slapped my half off coupons down.
IKEA bookshelf was $59.99.

It's all mine, customized to my liking
with none of the grossness that you sometimes get
from Craigslist.


It will make recovering from my surgery, all the more cozy!

Toodles...

Loving this idea for a mud room, would the shelves be wide enough for little baskets? Just thinking it would be great to put shoes in it. Lovin' the fabric!!
